no. maybe something about your cable or plug or socket in the phone? I
only get unreliable/noisy transmissions if the plug is not properly
inserted all the way to the end (which is likely since the plug housing
diameter is typically a bit larger than what the phone case can take
unless you remove the PCB from the phone, or have a very low-diameter
plug housing of your cable.
Initially I was using a 2.5mm to 3.5mm headphone adapter cable (the ones
for attaching regular 3.5mm headphones to phones that have a 2.5mm plug,
as those plugs are smaller than anything I've seen from the T191 serial
cables so far).

This is something I pondered of doing anyway... it simply made no
difference on Linux / pl2303 so I never bothered...
But I'm happy to merge it.
